Oscar-nominated Stuart Blumberg (The Kids Are All Right) makes his directorial debut with Thanks for Sharing, and with Gwyneth Paltrow, Mark Ruffalo, and Tim Robbins topping the cast, it’s definitely got the makings of a great film.
Eight new images have made their way online, featuring Paltrow, Ruffalo, Robbins, and some of the great supporting cast, which includes Joely Richardson (Nip/Tuck), Josh Gad (Love and Other Drugs), Patrick Fugit (Almost Famous), Isiah Whitlock, Jr. (The Wire), and Pink (you know who Pink is).
Co-written by Blumberg and Matt Winston (making his writing debut), the plot looks a little something like this:
“Dramatic comedy follows a group of unlikely friends brought together through their shared determination to recover from sex addiction as they try to forge meaningful relationships for the first time in their lives.”
Edward Norton is exec. producer, with his production company, Class 5 Films (Leaves of Grass), co-producing the movie alongside Olympus Pictures (Beginners, Rabbit Hole).
The film marks another collaboration between Blumberg and Ruffalo, with Ruffalo earning himself an Oscar nomination too for The Kids Aren’t Alright, as well as another collaboration with Ed Norton, having penned Norton’s directorial debut, Keeping the Faith.
Not to mention, of course, another collaboration for Ruffalo and Paltrow, starring in the box office destroyer, The Avengers, which is steadily making its way up the list of the highest-grossing films of all time.
Having found great success with his scripts so far, it will be interesting to see what Blumberg is like behind the camera. I’m guessing: pretty awesome.
Thanks for Sharing will be released in the US on 9th August. As yet, no word on when we can expect it in the UK. But here’s to hoping that it will be coming to our shores later this year too. Having Ruffalo, Paltrow, and Robbins in the leads will hopefully help its case. For now, the great new images from the film. Enjoy.
The pictures have been removed at the request of the studio. Which is a shame as they were rather good. Oh well.
